[cfe-dev] How flexible is the AST of Clang and its file format?

Hi Clang list,
I've been on the LLVM Dev list for a while now and was getting frustrated with
trying to make a cross-platform bitcode distribution when I noticed there is an
AST file format used for higher-level representations of C-like languages under
What I want to do is make a GUI that represents the parse tree of a high-level
language as a tree-browser gadget so that it can be edited just like the code
but without the parsing and the keywords. I know it's been done before but I
think it will be a good exercise in programming.
Is it possible? Moreso, is it practical? I'd like to kind of cherry-pick the
capabilities I support, eg. no preprocessor but yes templates.
Thanks for your patience and your thoughts,
